I'm going to go out on a limb here and state straight up that I think Glycine is one of the most overrated watch brands we see here on MD. That said, I'm well aware they have a fallowing and I'm certainly not saying they're a bad watch, per se.
My issue is with the games everyone seems to be playing with their offered price vs the claimed MSRP. We know they're bull shit up front, but I say it also says something about the value the manufacturer puts on the watch, and perhaps worse--what the manufacturer thinks of YOU, their customer. Consider for a moment the many things you do buy over the corse of a month or year--would you trust anyone who claimed the price of "X-whatever" was really two or three thousand times more expensive, but they were giving you a deal on it? Say...groceries, a tank of gas, or dinner and drinks? No, you would not! You would think they were trying to con you. I say that's what Glycine is doing, and maybe even (or especially) what Rolex is doing, and maybe every other watch manufacturer is doing too. My question is how deep do you want to get into it, for this brand? How much kool-aid are you willing to swill to jump on this or that bandwagon?
But even if you don't agree with me, do some price checking before you buy any watch, but especially any Glycine. And remember: there is NO shortage of Glycines, and this isn't the only place sells them.
